'Pandora's Box' is the imaginary soundtrack to the 1920's Louise Brooks-starring film of the same name. It's an interesting and brave concept and one which, admittedly, would be best appreciated whilst watching the film itself. The plot involves a woman murdering her lover, becoming a prostitute and then getting murdered herself. Appropriately the music itself is dark and mysterious; at times - especially on 'The Countess Geschwitz', 'Countess Goodbye' and the closing 'Theme' - recalling the instrumental passages that featured on the This Mortal Coil albums. From the sounds one can detect the hints of danger and excitement on the industrial interludes of 'The Wedding Party' and 'Running'. The soundscapes don't offer anything particularly innovative (it is based on a 1920s film of course) but are haunting and brooding enough to be evocative whilst crucially working together to produce a quality instrumental album.
